Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

I have twice odered his trio of French wines for my sister and her husband as gifts. Not only did the wine arrive promptly, but my sister and her husband raved about the taste and smoothness of the wine (and they are very particular). It is excellent quality at a reasonable price. I will be ordering from wine.com again!

I would not have purchased this wine because it has a screwcap. A friend sent it to me for Christmas as part of a trio of wines and I was pleasantly surprised with the smoothness and great balance! I will be ordering more!
